Hi Adam! Thank you for speaking with me today!
What have you been working on lately?
I've been staying busy finishing up the EP for my new solo project Aphelyon. I'm also playing lead guitar for a funk/soul project with a tremendous singer, Sabrina Marlene.
What has been one of the moments of your career that stands out to you?
Playing a solo set at The Music Farm in Charleston SC. I grew up seeing my favorite bands there so it was a dream to play that stage.
If you could open a show for any artist, who would it be?
Well, Phish, but they don't have opening acts! So, I'd have to say opening for Emancipator would be pretty incredible.
Do you have any specific goals or aspirations for your music/work in the new year?
Most definitely excited to release my new EP for Aphelyon and to have a successful Fall Tour. I want to gain traction with spins on playlists and overall listener engagement to start building on my fan base.
What are some recent victories in your career that you are celebrating?
In addition to my solo releases, I am very excited to be a part of the funk band I mentioned earlier. We're going to have some great local shows.
What significance/ role do you feel music plays in culture?
Wow! That's a loaded question that could keep me talking for days. The short answer: I think music--especially live music-- is absolutely, 100%, essential to a cultures well being, community and sanity. Music is an integral part of any cultures life blood.
Please let everyone know where to keep up with you! My new website will be launching soon! www.aphelyonmusic.com
